Patients with crooked, crowded or gapped teeth should consider teeth straightening in order to correct and enhance the appearance of their smile. However, in most cases, adults are not willing to undergo the lengthy treatment time that’s usually needed. Luckily, modern teeth straightening treatments are effective, discreet and above all fast, compared to metal braces. Six Month Smiles is one such teeth straightening system.
The Six Month Smiles system consists of invisible brackets and wires, and is aimed at patients who aren’t interested in lengthy teeth straightening treatment, but who wish to enjoy the cosmetic benefits of a straighter smile. Six Month Smiles in Glasgow is available in specialised dental practices, including Park Orthodontics. It is ideal for adults who wish to straighten their teeth quickly and effectively in a very short time, usually while preparing for a special event like a wedding or a graduation.
How Does the Treatment Work?
Six Month Smiles braces work just like regular braces. More particularly, these braces combine the reliability of metal braces with the discreetness of tooth-coloured brackets and wires. Six Month Smiles in Glasgow can achieve a wide range of tooth movement including extrusions, rotations and various types of tipping. However, these braces focus only on the front teeth and make no changes to a patient’s bite. For this reason, they are not ideal for severely misaligned teeth. In this case, a dentist may recommend regular braces. Typical treatment time is only six months, however, some patients may require less or more time depending on their individual needs.
Benefits of Six Month Smiles Braces
The most obvious advantage of Six Month Smiles over other teeth straightening options, is that treatment takes around six months. Comprehensive teeth straightening treatment with braces usually takes around 12-18 months. Six Month Smiles treatment isn’t quicker because it is moving the teeth faster – it is quicker because it only focuses on the front teeth. Moreover, Six Month Smiles braces are discreet, since they match the colour of the natural teeth and blend inconspicuously with them. This way patients can have their teeth straightened without anybody knowing.
